Checkr raises $40 million to expand its service

Commentary
The success of on-demand businesses like Uber and GrubHub, has sparked the growth of B2B startups that provide support services for these companies. One such company is Checkr, a leading background check service used by the on-demand economy. Checkr runs employee background checks and vets potential hires by way of an API. Some of Checkr’s clients are Uber, Instacart, DoorDash and GrubHub and the company processes over 30,000 background checks per month. The company recently raised $40 million so it can expand its service outside of the on-demand ecosystem to include peer-to-peer commerce, marketplace businesses, and enterprises.
